Hankook Tyre To Provide Original Fitment Tyres To Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line
Hankook Tyre has recently extended its partnership with the German car maker, Volkswagen. The partnership will result in Hankook providing the original equipment tyres for the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line with the Hankook’s Ventus S1 noble 2 that comes in 2 sizes i.e. 255/45 R19 H and 255/40 R20 V XL.
The Ventus S1 noble 2 is an all season ultra-high performance tyre renowned for its low rolling resistance with excellent handling. The tyre is also designed for reduced road noise and increased fuel efficiency. The tyre embedded with Hankook 3D vibration control technology provides excellent riding comfort for the rider and has also received high ratings from various automotive publications around the world.
Hankook Tyre’s relationship with Volkswagen goes back to the year 2001, when the South Korean tyre manufacturer started producing tyres for Volkswagen Jetta. This partnership continued further with Hankook serving as original equipment tyres supplier for Volkswagen Polo in 2003 and gradually expending to Volkswagen’s other popular models such as Beetle, Passat, UP!, Golf and for many other models.
The Tiguan is one of the best-selling models made by Volkswagen globally. Hankook Tyre’s original fitment for the current R-Line provides sporty handling so as to match the vehicle. The engineers at Hankook Tyre have also focused on durability and comfort despite its precise handling and focus on high grip. As per the statement from the Head of OE Division, Hyun Jun Cho, they are happy with the partnership with Volkswagen for supplying Tiguan R-Line with their high performance tyre.
Of late, Hankook Tyre is expanding its presence in the United States of America by forging strong relationships with various automakers and its market leading product innovation. With the expansion of Original Equipment (OE) as in the case of Tiguan R-Line, Hankook Tyre will continue to secure its position in the US as well as in the global tyre market.
